Learning philosophy will provide you with new understandings of business, economics, science, criminology and society.

Our philosophy courses teach you the philosophical frameworks through a wide and varied history, including environmental philosophy, ethics, philosophical psychology, history of ideas and more. 

A philosophy degree isn’t just theory. Working in business, information technology, public office and various other industries demands logical thinking — this is what philosophical studies can teach you.

Use those skills to understand complex problems and find solutions that can make a positive impact on society.

    From Arts to Cambridge

    Since completing a Bachelor of Arts at Swinburne, Dustin Barter’s work with Oxfam has taken him throughout Asia and East Africa.

    Now he’s received a prestigious scholarship that gives him the opportunity to study at Cambridge University – for the second time.

  • "For my placement, I spent a year working with a VWA-accredited private investigation service. It really allowed me to utilise my critical thinking together with analytical and research skills. My experience has been so rewarding I deferred my final semester to continue working and learning at CHS Australia."
